Dual Bootable System

I have a 1 gig drive that is partitioned in half.  First I loaded MS-DOS 6.22 on the C:\ drive.  Then I loaded Windows95b(FAT32) on the D:\ drive.  Now the computer just boots Win95.  Is there any programming I can do in the config.sys and/or autoexec.bat to give me a boot menu ? I am trying to avoid spending money on system commander or some other boot loader.

When you computer boots up, and when you see "starting windows 95" press F8 and youll see a menu...

Choose previous version of MS-DOS and it should boot you up to your previous version

Is there any way to give the users a startup menu?
Most end users will not remember to press F8 upon boot-up

Type in a command:

edit msdos.sys     from the command prompt


go to the line that says BOOTMENU=0

Change that line to say BOOTMENU=1

this should give you a menu every time you start
